    What a bunch of idiots. I just wish I could marvel at his wonder of a front driveshaft. I guess we'll just have to settle for what looks like a rod end on a street truck's drag link and a huge steering block bewteen the knuckle and steering arm.

    Well, that and the thick spring pack that is borderline insanity.

    Wow, what a bunch of hacks.

    Edit:

    Front diff vent is a beauty too. Check out the other pictures and explain to me why a truck with 20" leaf springs needs a body lift.

    Why do I have a particular dislike for those who measure their lift in feet rather than inches?

    Because the ppl that do that are chodes and give the rest of the lifted truck comunity a bad name when they crash and kill people. Oh and they think that because they have more lift then you that their truck is better. Some guy said his truck was better then mine once not to long ago and I said lets hit the trail. Neadles to say he wouldnt do it. He probably knew his truck would flip on the first rock at the trail.

    Drop a ton of cash on a truck lifting it, to render it nearly useless. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif I see them out there time to time without a front driveline... /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif

    that guy is just down the road from the shop I am moving to.
    we were roasting him a bit on a local board.
    apparently on the local board that sucks horse cock he just ran to the censor and had the negative stuff deleted
    not so lucky on the anything goes board
    still would rather educate a soring shop then just ridicule them
    I would love to find a spring shop that actually owns a 4x4 and therefore possesses at least some insight into what is desired in a spring

    It's ok then because he uses Coke cans instead of inches or feet. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    they will make you a custom spring pack to your specs that you desire.i think that is pretty cool.a couple of those trucks looked trail worthy.

    You guys make coments as if these trucks will ever be off-road. They are not built for that. Yes, in my opinon, it is a waist of a good truck, but it's not mine, so I don't care. As far as that duelly, I would love to have that rig. It would be great for pulling my trailer queen to the trails.

    Why would I care if they mainly make stuff for show trucks or posers? If I can get good quality custom springs at a good price, they're OK in my book. Not everyone 'wheels their rigs. Who knows, maybe I'll be the first customer of their to 'wheel the pee-pee out of a set of springs. One more thing, big lift aren't always bad, not all of us crawl rocks, and we don't all want to have to remove our fenders to clear tall tires!
